About the Process for hand making a ceramic decoration
I cut out and form each whippet using a stamp, smooth the edges and fine tune, add a hole for string before it heads into the kiln for it's first firing. Once out of the kiln, the underglazing begins. Consisting of 3 coats usually for optimum coverage.
Once complete, it goes back into the kiln for the underglaze to be fired on. Once fired, and cooled, it is dipped in a clear glaze and fired one final time.
